Spontaneous macrocyclization through multiple dynamic cyclic aminal formation

Author affiliations

Abstract

The use of aminals in dynamic covalent chemistry is slightly underexplored, probably due to their inherent instability. Here we report the spontaneous [2+2] macrocyclization of tetrakis(aminals). Their unexpected stability and structural modularity, the dynamic nature of the connections and their water tolerance make them appealing systems for future applications as stimulus-responsive materials.
